Default Media Card not recognised in Windows - 8110

Please Login to Remove!

Hi there

I've tried to resolve this via other similar threads, but no exact result mainly because of the user explanation, so I'll try my best

Pearl 8110, OS: 4.5.0x
Media card in use varies, tried a couple (128MB and 2GB)
Desktop Manager v5
PC OS: tried in Windows 7 and XP, same issue

Problem: Windows explorer won't see my media card as a removable drive. Upon connection to desktop manager no external media card access happens.

Desktop manager sees my Blackberry, syncs and all fine.
Roxio media manager (part of Desktop manager) works fine too.
Media card support on the 8110 is on and set exactly right (compared to another 8100 I have and other thread advice).
The Pearl can see files through media player and plays them fine.

But using Roxio is clunky compared to connecting through windows explorer and drag/dropping.

I have an 8100 that works perfectly, and Windows 7 recognised it as a blackberry 8100.
The 8110 Windows 7 only knows as a 'blackberry device', and it won't upload new drivers as they are 'up to date'.

Have blackberry deleted the removable drive drivers or something??
Any help please?
